Thanks Mayer, but I get the kernel panic on boot up, so the only way for me to access the iBook is in safe mode. Airport is disabled there and grayed out in Network pref's. I know there must be a terminal command to disable it. I'm thinking I can just disable the airport card and buy an wireless USB adaptor...
